On twenty-four very sturdy board-book pages, The ME Book shows vivid color drawings of animals and children in action, by illustrator Tibor Gergely. Jean Tymms provides text that presents different parts of the body and the many things each body part can do.

An owl on a tree branch demonstrates 'My eyes are for looking' while 'and closing when I go to sleep' shows mother mouse in bed with baby mouse asleep on a floor pillow. Mrs. Cow demonstrates that 'My nose is for sneezing ... and smelling spring flowers.' Most important are 'My ears ... for listening, and holding up eyeglasses.' Tymms asks, 'Can you wiggle your ears?' Next, 'My arms are for hugging' and 'My hands are for making mud pies and painting.' Putting all body parts together demonstrates, 'And all of me is for climbing ... playing ... dancing'.

The ME Book ends with the question, 'What do you like to do?' and is perfect for babies and pre-schoolers. Look at the animals with them, and join them in the fun.
